The $80 million Lower Tuck Commercial Project is approaching its final stages of development. Third & Urban, the project’s developers, have been working on redeveloping the mid-century warehouses on Charlotte’s west side, to produce four mixed-use commercial buildings, with indoor and outdoor spaces for offices, showrooms, retail and restaurants.
These four buildings are crammed in between Seversville, Wesley Heights and Enderly Park neighborhoods, off Jay and Gesco Streets. Two out of the four Lower Tuck Commercial Project buildings, which are on 1018 and 929 Jay Street, are almost complete, and a third building which is off Gesco Street will be completed by early next month.
All four buildings have received full roof replacements, with rooflights, new store front window openings, landscaping and parking lot installation. Construction on the common areas, outdoor patios and courtyards is also virtually complete and the design also includes a rooftop patio that will be shared by prospective food & beverage tenants.
JLL will be working with Third & Urban on the Lower Tuck commercial project, to help in securing the most suitable tenants for the property, to encourage the growth of its commercial identity. Upon completion, Leasing arrangements and management services will be provided by Charley Leavitt, Barry Fabyan and Alexandra Mann, who are team members of JLL.
Barry Fabyan said, “We’re seeing a lot of interest on this side of the city from companies that are seeking differentiated office space to lure top talent”.
A managing partner at Third & Urban, Pierce Lancaster, also praised the area and predicted that many great things would come to the community. Lancaster recalled several businesses like: Not Just Coffee, Hygge, Lucky Dog, Summit Seltzer and Enderly Coffee, that had laid some solid groundwork for the Lower Tuck commercial project, which is currently being built in the community and he said the company was happy to be part of this development.
Lancaster stated, “Our team is looking forward to the completion of Lower Tuck and some other tentative investments we’re making over here.”
